A Fort in the North End of Central Park: How Things Have Changed!

The Gatehouse at McGowen's Pass

The Gatehouse at McGowen’s Pass that connected to Nutter’s Battery, Fort Clinton and, above them all, Fort Fish

There being no photography during the Revolutionary War, I have to rely on drawings and renditions of what was there at the time.

However, this drawing of McGowen’s Pass (to the right) is so realistic that it makes a good substitute for a photograph.

Imagine this same location becoming an urban park surrounded by skyscrapers a mere two hundred years later!

Christopher Middleton, the main character in my young adult adventure series, Central Park Story, visits the fort and meets General George Washington.
